Albion Rovers Centenary Exhibition

Recommended Posts

Date for the Diary - 'A Game of 2 Halves'. Celebrating 100 years of Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill Stadium.

 

Seemed like an appropriate juncture to highlight this. Not just for Rovers fans. If you're dropping the weans off at The Time Capsule, heading for Drumpellier Loch or, even more convenient, taking them round Summerlee Heritage Centre, why not drop in? It's free, it runs until October and should be of interest to supporters of any stripe - or quarter, diamond or hoop, for that matter........

 

A mix of new unseen stills from photographer Iain McLean's social document on the fans and environment of Albion Rovers FC, a superb film called 'We Are Albion' by film-maker Wilma Smith, as well as Wilma's fans sound recordings, unusual football artefacts from long term fans and, get this, the event is being opened by the Kirkintilloch Kelvin Brass Band!

 

The free official opening is on Saturday 6th July at 1pm upstairs in Summerlee Museum, Coatbridge ML5 1QD.

Spread the word - copy and paste this on your social media, and we look forward to seeing you there.57602808_10205604458468741_5234950429514661888_o-820x547.jpg

Thanks for spreading the news. My office is in Coatbridge and Summerlee is a stones throw away so I’ll be sure to pop in for a look.

Yeah, we play Accies on 6th July. The exhibition runs for 3 months though, so there's a good chance we'll have Edinburgh City at home during that period.

Sounds superb. Hopefully Cowden get a game at Cliftonhill before October, and I can pop in to have a look at this. Hope it proves a great success
